✅ Trip Verified | Cardiff to Glasgow. Implacable relentless measuring of every cabin bag/case revealed that my wheelie case was too wide (I would like to measure the cages they use) despite it being acceptable on multiple flights all over Europe. I was charged £50 with no apologies or understanding and their practice caused a f...

✅ Trip Verified | Worst flight I have ever had the displeasure of being on. First delayed for 2 hours, with no reason given then just before we land we get told actually we're not going to Southampton we're going to Exeter. I didn't think you could change the flight plan half way through. After arriving in the wrong airport in ...

✅ Trip Verified | Manchester to Amsterdam. I was treated like a criminal for having a bag 3cm wider than their required size. Paying 50 pounds extra, they could have handled this in a much more humane way. I flew with this bag on the outward leg and it was not a problem. They kept talking about a purple tag but how were you sup...

✅ Trip Verified | East Midlands to Edinburgh. Pretty average on the whole. The reviews about the baggage policy are true. I hung back to almost last and so although I did measure my case at home I am still not 100% sure if it fits. No-one challenged me as I assume they thought they had dealt with everyone, but I know several pe...

✅ Trip Verified | Charged £50 for a hand luggage which does meet their 55x20x35 requirements. Hard shell cases which have the exact size requirements do no slide down to the end in their tiny metal sizer. Everyone on my flight from EDI to BHX with a hard shell case was charged, and passengers with soft fabric cases of the max a...

✅ Trip Verified | East Midlands to Amsterdam. Absolutely shocking airline, first and last time I'll be flying with Flybe again! Travelling for a birthday surprise for my husband's birthday, paid through the nose and to be told my hand luggage didn't meet the requirements, so another and further £100 later and we are still sat he...

✅ Trip Verified | East Midlands to Amsterdam. My hand luggage that respected the limits published on their website was oversized for them and asked to pay 50 GBP to get to the plane I paid for.

✅ Trip Verified | Manchester to Paris. Be very careful, flybe has one of the smallest baggage allowance in the market and the prices at gate are absolutely scandalous. Most of the time, they are not even cheaper than their competitors. Food and beverages on board are poor quality and expensive, I am pretty sure the increase the ...

✅ Trip Verified | Fly with FlyBe all the time both for business and leisure. Flew from Exeter to Norwich 3 days ago and my hand baggage was checked at Exeter airport and was fine. I use the same bag all the time and have measured to make sure it is ok. Then in my return flight from Norwich was told it was too large and had to g...

✅ Trip Verified | Exeter to Geneva. After all the poor reviews about Flybe I took this business trip with some trepidation. However, it was just fine. Perhaps because this flight did not rely on an incoming aircraft that may have been delayed due to bad weather my flight departed and arrived exactly on time. Check-in at Exeter'...

✅ Trip Verified | Norwich to Alicante. I fly this route regularly using the same hand luggage approved by Flybe previously but this time they decided to get some more cash and charge me £50 for a protruding buckle. Norwich airport staff are a joke by the way, £50 and all the inconvenience associated because they are failing and...

✅ Trip Verified | Glasgow to Birmingham. A day’s business wrecked by FlyBe’s inabiliy to operate a short domestic flight anywhere near to schedule. Flight should depart at 08:40, receive a text at 6:45am advising of delay, just 10 mins before earlier flight departs meaning that despite staying in hotel just a few yards from air...

✅ Trip Verified | Absolute joke of a company. I had a flight from Paris to Newcastle with a stop off in Southampton (and vice versa). My first flight (Paris-Southampton) was delayed so I missed my second flight and the exact same thing happened on the way back! I was suppose to arrive in Newcastle around mid-day, I arrived ther...

✅ Trip Verified | Birmingham to Knock. Every second person gets charged £50 for bags since their bag gauge is tiny - it is far smaller than any other airline. Beware. I saw elderly people with their luggage struggle with this which was really difficult to watch. I also previously was charged €85 twice for a flight due to their ...

✅ Trip Verified | This company are a complete joke. On our outbound to East Midlands they had to divert to Birmingham because of “technical problems”. No explanation whatsoever and left the passengers feeling scared. A quick google search will show how many technical problems this airline has. Disturbing. On the way back the cab...

✅ Trip Verified | Amsterdam to Birmingham. Just landed back from Amsterdam with Flybe. We fly every year with the same suitcase to Amsterdam with Flybe. On the way to Amsterdam our suitcases was fine ,and got the approval label. At the Amsterdam gate the horrible woman said we have to measure and charged 70euros to take on plane...

✅ Trip Verified | Southampton to Paris. Every airline I have flown in the past 10 years have accepted by briefcase as hand luggage. Today flying with a laptop, and papers, on a day return costing £440 return Flybe check in took my briefcase away, leaving me carrying my laptop, papers and medication, and charged me £40 for an em...

✅ Trip Verified | New Baggage rule scam Had the same issue as others. Have used the same bag several times with FlyBe and had the test done with the box. A tight fit but was never warned about it and most importantly it fitted in the over-head lockers. This time charged £50. I was first to arrive so got the “full service” . I n...

✅ Trip Verified | Edinburgh to Manchester. Cabin Luggage dimension for Flybe are less than Ryanair 55x35x20. Having had my cabin luggage approved for size when leaving Manchester using one of the Flybe cardboard box measurement tools by a member of ground crew going out from Manchester without any problem. I stupidly took the p...

✅ Trip Verified | Edinburgh to Manchester. Avoid their new bag scam. Mine was fine however they are charging £50 if the bag didn’t fit in the frame. This delayed my flight by 30 mins, no apology. Missed my specified train. Very unpleasant onboard having expressed my dissatisfaction not even a verbal response from the flight sta...
